I am now haunted by one horrid idea: shall I be driven to the necessity of turning butcher? Shall I be obliged, in order to prolong my own existence, to cut the throat of the animal which has fed me up to the present? I have now only a half ration of milk. February 7.--I have tried every expedient.--Once I got a little more milk by giving her a triple allowance of salt, which made her drink more. But it was impossible to go on so; because I shall require all my salt, if — Poor Blanchette ! I have heard that hens too fat and well fed, do not lay so abundantly as lean ones; so I thought I would try the effect of giving my goat a smaller quantity of hay.--But it did not answer. She yielded still less milk, and I had the vexation of hearing her bleat hal
e Bank of England. Ultimately, however, it was seen that this is the true course for that establishment, and the only one likely to prevent the existing difficulty from assuming proportions that might lead to serious results, which could not fail to produce inconvenience on this side, and a feeling of greater confidence became apparent.

The ultimatum of South Carolina refused by the General Government. Washington, Feb, 7.--The N. Y. Herald's correspondent says the President's reply to Col. Hayne was transmitted yesterday. It calls for an answer from Hayne, which will be made immediately. This will close the correspondence. The Government refuses to comply with the demand of South Carolina for the surrender of Fort Sumter. All hope of a peaceable solution of the question is abandoned. There has been an apparent disposition on both sides to delay matters in hope an amicable adjustment might be made, leading to peace in Charleston harbor, but the matter cannot further be postponed. Carolina has presented her ultimatum, and the Government has positively refused to comply.

Mr. Corwin proposed to postpone calling the previous question on it for a week. Henry Winter Davis, of Maryland, made a speech, in which he referred to the imbecility of the President, and treason of the former members of the Cabinet. He said the Constitution and laws must be enforced, and those who oppose them must conquer, submit, or be destroyed. (Applause.) This was the sentiment of Maryland. Mr. Kunkel desired to deny this, but the Republican side of the House were too well pleased to permit him, and Mr. Davis declined yielding the floor. Mr. Davis continued. Whether elected by the people of Maryland, or not, I will state what I know to be their will. (Deafening applause.) He would fight disunion from St. Mary's to the Alleghanies. Mr. Kunkel
